on this, i think i'm a little to her left on a lot of thers foreign policy issues like iraq and the middle east. she's positioned herself just where you want to be, a notch or two to the right of obama on foreign policy, vis-a-vis netanyahu. she never took back her support for the iraq war. it seems to me she's notched pretty close to the model there politically, a good place to run against any republican. >> let's see about that because by that teary if you go all the way back to when the kts first made it to the national stage, bill clinton should have been the favorite of the republicans at the brought the democratic party away from the left and into the middle. instead, of course, you had the bill clinton years were just like the obama years. >> you see this happening again? swrooim saying they're going to find something. it's not always logical, not always about it's this issue -- >> let's get back to the visceral part. not just we're going to run against her because she could potentially be the democratic standard bearer but are we going to hate her? i agree with you -- rana this is

not only did it take benghazi off the table, it basically took foreign policy off the table. it seemed like in the third debate that romney barely showed up because he had basically ceded all of foreign policy to the president. that's what the polls were showing. but also, it's something that you very rarely see in a debate, chris, which is a clean kill. you've got lloyd benson doing it to dan quayle. two or three other examples in the entire history of presidential debates. and this was the perfect one where romney was very well prepared on many other issues, was taken by his staff to a place that he shouldn't have been, where he is trying to score points on an issue where he shouldn't have been trying to score. >> i could just add to this. >> go ahead, what made that so effective is he wasn't even the one who delivered the sort of kill line. it was candy crowley, the moderator of the debate. because of what romney said is that obama did not use those words was so demonstratebly false that the moderator stepped in at the time and fact checked him and said you're wrong. that was so devastat

and jewish statements. is he too liberal on foreign policy for republicans or just too close to obama? well, we're going to tell you why the hagel fight matters, even if he becomes another causality of washington's angry nomination process. [ male announcer ] this december, remember -- what starts with adding a friend... ♪ ...could end with adding a close friend. the lexus december to remember sales event is on. this is the pursuit of perfection. >>> i think all 100 senators ought to be on the line on this. what do you believe? what are you willing to support? what do you think? why are you elected, because you wanted a safe job? go sell shoes. this is a tough business. but is it any tougher, us having to take a tough vote, express ourselves, and have the courage to step up than what we're asking our young men and women to do? i don't think so. >> by opposing george w. bush's iraq surge in 2007, chuck hagel endeared himself to anti-war democrats but lost a lot of republican support. now while president obama's next potential secretary of defense is being hailed by some precisely because h

of the 20th-century would bring as a major financial crisis and gulf was a foreign policy that would overextend us and undermine our national security. the government would have had to change in monetary system, shrink in size and scope, and reduce the unsustainable cost of policing the world. the problems seem to be overwhelming and impossible to solve, yet from my viewpoint, just following the constraints placed on the federal government by the constitution would have been a good place to start. just how much did i accomplished? in many ways, according to conventional wisdom, but often on a career in congress from 1976 to 2012 accomplished very little. no name legislation, no name federal buildings or highways. the government has grown exponentially. taxes remain excessive. a prolific increase of incomprehensible regulations continues. wars are constant, and pursued without congressional declaration. deficits rise to this guy. poverty is rampant. dependency on the federal government is now worse than any time in our history. all of this with minimal concerns the deficit and unfunde

in the congress. these negotiations happen on budgets, on taxes, on even foreign policy issues the last days when the presidential hopefuls he sure is really on. when the gun is pointing to the head of a lot of members of congress. bipartisan, republican and democrats. it is moving in the right direction. we have three, four days to go. i wouldn't be surprised ifing something doesn't happen until the very last day. but i think it will. i sense that. >> sean: let me governor just very gently disagree with you. i know you probably think this is maybe a good deal whatever they are talking about and they are talking. i spoke to somebody who was in the meeting today and the president is exactly where he was on day one and that is businesses, small business, over $250,000 they pay more. that would fund government for 8 and a half days. that is all that is going to be. to me when a president borrows 46 cents of every dollar and we are $16 trillion in debt tell me where we are wronging. i don't think we are dealing with the real problem. i don't think this solves anything. i think this has been a false a

that the president actively tried to be funny in multiple points of the debate. when he woke up for the foreign policy debate, he had a great moment where he makes the bayonet joke. let's listen to the president being funny. >> you mentioned the navy, for example. we have fewer ships in we have fewer horses and bayonets. >> classic. >> let's go, obama. did his staff finally find the adrenaline pump and stab him? he woke up. i was clapping saying please, continue this, whatever is happening, please. >> it was good stuff. >> i feel like the first time out, cousin obama was channelling his inner middle eastern leader like why is this man talking to me. i think that's what it was. the next time, he was a comic that forgot to do his jokes so he used every whitey comeback he forgot the first time. >> right. >> you could hear the collective cheer of all the democrats after that bayonet line. everyone was like yes. >> don't call it a comeback. >> i want to know who wrote that line. he must have been doing the "w" in the back. a win. >> whoever the young staffer was on friday in the wings when the presi

on foreign relations, author of "foreign policy begins at home: the case for putting america's house in order." and in washington, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com and msnbc political analyst, richard wolffe. a minor round of applause for richard wolffe. >> one hand clapping. >> first of all, can anybody here come up with a synonym -- i don't care what it is -- so we don't have to employ the phrase "fiscal cliff" at all during the day? any ideas? anybody got any -- >> how about deadline? >> how about do your job. how about just do your job time. it is ridiculous. a little news, then we'll chatter about this. as if tax hikes and spending cuts weren't enough, there's a new reminder that the nation's debt ceiling is also hanging over the budget talks in washington. in a letter to congress yesterday, treasury secretary timothy geithner warned the government would hit its legal borrow i borrowing limit i limit by monday. geithner says the treasury will be forced to take, quote, extraordinary measures to keep paying the bills. he also referenced the impending fiscal cliff, which thr
